Magic sauce Ask for what you want

There is a secret key to achieving your dreams.  The key is asking. It is one of the most daunting action steps a person can take, and the most liberating.

There are many ways of asking, for most situations it starts with these three steps.

1. Decide what you want, specifically, know what you want overall. Then decide what you want in specifics (really break it down)

2. Know who to ask

3 Ask

It all sounds so simple.  I know it isn’t.

Do you have a written code of conduct?

Pegine www.Pegine.com 904.280.8806 Leadership Speaker Business Speaker Diversity Speaker Women’s Leadership Speaker Motivational Speaker Jacksonville Speaker Florida Speaker

Do you have a written individual code of conduct? Does your organization have a clear, concise code that causes commitment?  Read the US military code of conduct. It is very clear, concise and causes commitment.  If you don’t have one, create one, don’t use big words, make yours very clear. 

Spend time reviewing your history, the words you have used and the unspoken expectations that you and your organization have.  Write them down and be very clear. 

********************************************************************

The Code of Conduct provides guidance for the behavior and actions of members of the Armed Forces of the United States. This guidance applies not only on the battlefield, but also in the event that the service member is captured and becomes a prisoner of war (POW).

The Code is delineated in six articles.

Article I:

I am an American, fighting in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.[3]

4 Changes Caused by Women In Leadership

Last night I was in a restaurant and noticed a group of women in the corner. The restaurant was empty and the voices of the women reached my table. They were talking about leadership, opportunities and women in leadership.

They were talking about their next steps, I was able to surmise that they worked for a large global corporation and were in senior leadership. As my ears grew and I strained to listen I heard the same things that I hear from my coaching clients, all who are in senior leadership.

The Gift of Knowing

I have had a long time of knowing. A long time of knowing but not necessarily believing this was my destiny. For a long time, I kept asking for my mission and my purpose. While I had many signals that directed me, I still was not sure.

My journey has been as glorious as a winding stream traveling long distances, curving, going back, and having many switchbacks. At times my stream was a rapid river of abundance and experiences, at other times it was a little trickle, still moving but by droplets. I know I was impatient, wondering and often not appreciating where I was and how I got there.

What I’ve learned is the stream will always be flowing until the day I die, only then, maybe I will have reached my destiny.

Confidence

You want to open doors, be confident. You want to have an expansive life be confident. You want to achieve success in your life, career, relationships, being confident allows you to have it all.

Confidence is a feeling or emotion.

Pegine Motivational Speaker www.Pegine.com 904.2808806

Like all feelings and emotions confidence is in your control. Too often I hear people deny their confidence, they keep telling the same story. Get confident, put yourself out there over and over and over no matter what.

Not arrogant, but confident. Confidence is an internal knowing – a glow, while arrogance is a superior need to laud oneself over others. You can be arrogant and not confident.

Confidence is the fulcrum of your life. It is that sturdy, center that balances you and keeps you steady when things around you are teetering back and forth like a seesaw.

Be A Diamond Cutter

A foible is a minor weakness or eccentricity in someone’s character. Synonyms include words such as weakness, failing, shortcomings, flaws, imperfections, blemish, fault or limitations.

Humans tend to look for imperfections, comparing themselves to perfection which doesn’t exist. They search for what is wrong rather than search for what is right.

I love reading about diamonds and their value. I apply what I learn to myself and the people I work with. I want to use my knowledge to help people respect, honor and showcase their value.

Recently I read about the flaws, imperfections, and blemishes of diamonds.

“Diamonds are formed deep within the earth, under extreme heat and pressure; virtually all diamonds contain “birthmarks”, small imperfections inside the diamond (called inclusions), or on its surface (called blemishes). Clarity refers to the degree to which these imperfections are present. Diamond cutters make every effort to cut a stone so that inclusions are not visible through the table of the finished diamond.”

I love how Diamond cutters call imperfections inclusions. Every diamond has an inclusion. You are a diamond, as valuable, unique, inclusive and brilliant.

Expect Good Things to Happen To You

Wallace D. Wattles shares

“Every (wo)man has the natural and inherent power to think what he wants to think but requires far more effort to do so than it does to think the thoughts which are suggested by appearances. To think according to appearance is easy; to think truth regardless of appearances is laborious, and requires the expenditure of more power than any other work (wo)man is called upon to perform.”

You can think about what you really want to think and you can expect really good things to happen to you.

What is see is what you get. If you are seeing through a victim’s eyes, see limitations and expect failure and then that is what you will see and that is what will appear. Even when amazing, miraculous experiences are happening around you, because of your focus on negativity you won’t see the good, amazing, results.

Your Opinion Matters

Speak up, sit up because of your opinion matters.

There are legions of us women. Women who have an opinion and aren’t afraid to speak up.  From the time we were little we were heard.

These are women who see solutions and opportunities and point them out to others. As girls we were were coached to be quiet, punished and sent to detention, and often told sit down and shut up.

I had the good fortune of watching Dr. Marcia Reynold’s Tedex talk about Precocious women.   Leadership and talent development leaders will learn how to retain and promote women with opinions.

Precocious children [advanced for one’s age, forwardmaturegiftedtalentedcleverintelligentquick, smart] become precocious adults. 

When a precocious woman leads. Things get done.

Nurture Your Highest Perspective of Self

Nurture your highest perspective of self. Focus all your energy on your best self. Keep mindful of your magnificence and influence.  It isn’t easy in the world of social media and public critics. It is challenging when your biggest critic is yourself.

I wish there were blinders I could give you that would prevent you from comparing you to you (your reality now with your powerful, amazing now) and you to others.

I would rather you look at you from a higher perspective filled with the adoration, appreciation and expectation.Who you already are and who you strive to be and that you are living the story you want to live.

During my Influence coaching practice, I encounter brilliant leaders sometimes struggling with the story they tell themselves over and over and getting frustrated because they really want to live another story, what they perceive is their future story.

We work on shifting their current perception of self to their highest perspective of self. There are a lot of processes and techniques to get there.

These are five recommendations all of my leaders hear from me.
